  • Great location, very clean and cute! We plan to stay here again. Great host!

  • Very clean and great hospitality

  • Apartment exactly as described. I travel weekly for work and I am thankful to the nice people of Iowa to open up their spaces for rent. I am also thankful for the accurate reviewers. I used the coffee table that converted to a desk and the coffee they supplied each morning. TV’s are set up with a couple apps, like Hulu basic and Netflix. Bed was very comfortable. As other reviewers have mentioned, street noise is loud. However, the majority of the noise is a neighbor who is “cruising” proudly in his converted truck. Not much the owners can do about this, so bring ear plugs, if it will bother you. It’s clean and comfortable. I’ll be back when my work brings me in the area. P.S. The area has a cute town square with adorable shops to find unique gifts.

    There is a keypad on the cabin for self check in. We are on 7 acres close to Knoxville and Pella. The cabin is well stocked to meet your basic needs.
    Our getaway cabin is perfect for bird and wildlife watching. Deer roam by every evening to the north of the cabin. The chipmunks and squirrels are always entertaining. There are binoculars on the desk if you want to use them. A small stream runs through the property on the south.
    The dead end of 160th Avenue has a grass parking lot for access to thousands of acres of public ground on the south side of Lake Red Rock. The cabin is great for nature lovers and hunters looking for the lesser used paths in life. The Red Rock Dam and Army Corps if Engineers visitor center is 5 miles away. Knoxville Iowa is 2 miles west and Pella Iowa is only 12 miles to the east.
  • Sue and Daryl were perfect hosts! The cabin had everything we needed. We were in town for the Knoxville Nationals. This place is just far away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to drive back and forth each day. Plenty of room for everyone. Even has a washer and dryer to keep packing more simplistic. I have only good things to say about our stay!

    Jill2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A Funky little cabin in the woods of Iowa. Maybe not for urban hipsters but if you like little adventures you can count this as a good one

    Barry2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a quiet getaway

    Matt2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s home is very comforting and homey. She is very responsible to any questions or requests. The home wasn’t lacking for anything. We’ll be back on our next hunting trip in the area. Thanks Sue!

    Bill2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Lots of extras and the use of Alexa for music was a real plus. Our entire experience was positive and we would highly recommend anyone looking for a quiet country getaway to stay here.

    Jeanne2018-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Do yourself a favor and stay here! Youll be itching to tell your friends and family about it. By far the most memorable Air BnB I've been too. I think I spent an hour just looking around when we arrived. The walls are adorned with her talented husband's paintings. Actually the whole place is a work of art! It oozes with creativity. Sue is a very accommodating host and their place has all you'll need and more. The comfortable beds and peace and quiet are icing on the cake. Not to mention it's a great value!

    Aaron2018-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We came down to Knoxville from Minneapolis looking for some peace and quiet outdoors, and this cabin was perfect for that! On our first night we made chili in the awesome kitchen (which had everything you could need) and slept like babies in the comfortable bed. The next day we went for a walk in the woods and spent time visiting with Sue and Daryl, they were delightful and even gifted us with some delicious homemade wine! We went into Des Moines for dinner and drinks, which was a short 45 minute drive from the cabin. Sue and Daryl were available for any questions and gave us some coffee/breakfast and dinner recommendations in the area. Our weekend away couldn't have been better!

    The perfect country home and ranch property. Near Central College in Pella, Iowa, the famous Sprint Car National Raceway in Knoxville, and just a few miles from Lake Red Rock. This property and surrounding area offers exceptional hiking, fishing and bird watching. The Harvey Happy Ranch offers it all! My home is 10 minutes from Pella, Iowa.
    My home is spacious and comfortable. I have lived here since 1963. It has a real lived in feeling. The bedroom is large and airy. The private bath has plenty of hot water in the shower and all the towels are new. A large living room has queen hide a bed with comfy air mattress. A private bath with tub and hand held shower. Endless coffee or tea in the kitchen. gas range and microwave. The refrigerator has filtered water and the filter is changed regularly. plenty of ice and kitchen has complete cooking needs.
    Harvey is a small town. Harvey used to be a railroad crossroads but is now a bedroom town. There is no zoning here and a few eyesore properties. My neighbors are great people who would do anything to be helpful. it is a short drive to Pella,Knoxville, and Oskaloosa.
  • This place is extraordinarily beautiful! Warm and inviting with new things to see around every corner! Jeannine was an incredible host and we are so glad we got to meet her...very interesting lady! If you ever find yourself in the middle of Iowa it is definitely worth the stay!

    Dave2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • It wasn’t my first stay at the Harvey Happy Ranch and it won’t be my last! It’s such a unique place, with something new to discover around every corner. There is no place like it, anywhere.

    Carrie2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem of a find! Quiet, peaceful, comfy bed, what else could a traveler want? Oh, a kitchen and laundry and all that a cute, homey home can provide. We were so happy with our stay!

    Chris2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet home More than enough room

    Mark2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent host! The country home offers an extremely clean, low pressure, warm atmosphere with lots of treasures to explore. The location is easy to get to & situated to where you can find plenty of opportunities within a short drive. If you need a break from the daily grind or just want an easy weekend, this spot would fit the bill! The resident dog & mule on the property just add to the relaxed lifestyle this home creates.

    David2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I spent a nice relaxing weekend hanging out at the ranch and visiting the area. Jeannine's place is nice and cozy, and we had everything we needed. Thanks for being a good host!

    Nikki2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed this ranch, it had a great personal touch, Jeannine was outstanding, an incredibly positive experience.

    Alexander2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jeannie’s place was absolutely enchanting! My husband had to work on a nearby electrical project for a week for long hours, which left me and my cattle dog (Penny) on our own during the day without a vehicle. But instead of feeling lonely and bored, it was like being at a peaceful, spiritual retreat. Penny and I loved sitting on the porch listening to a symphony of songbirds. Multiple orioles and catbirds came to the feeder, and a sweet little wren came in and out of its quirky little home above a life-sized metal knight. The house was warm and inviting, with so many fascinating and interesting items on the walls. I told my husband that this was a home that is a testament to a life lived well. Jeannie has much to be proud of. She is clearly an interesting person with a wonderful story. Penny and I also had a wonderful time exploring the property. Don’t expect a sterile suburban cookie cutter environment. I loved the wilderness feel and the eclectic artifacts scattered about, including an authentic rough hewn log cabin, and an ancient airplane. Harvey is a tiny town of 277 people (according to the town sign), and Penny and I enjoyed walking every single street in the town over three days, and also biking out to the train trestle bridge on the outskirts of town. It was so interesting to see all of the different homes, most humble, but many clearly loved and maintained, often with quirky fun touches. The people we met on our wanderings were unfailingly warm and welcoming. Bob and I even stopped in “Peggy’s Place,” the only bar in town, and had the best time talking with the locals, who clearly enjoyed hearing about our upstate New York lifestyle, and gave us great recommendations. Peggy was the BEST. She even hooked us up with personalized pens and beer coosies! Overall, a great experience, one that I highly recommend. Thank you Jeannie, and the rest of the people in Harvey who were so welcoming!

    We are now renting our paradise/summer getaway!! A perfect location and set up for your family!! Located in Antler Acres just 3 miles from the Honey Creek State Park boat ramp. Our newer modern mobile home is situated on a peaceful corner lot, with a very nice view. Great nature/view setting, with lots worth of yard space for games and campfire. We have room for parking, including your boat or jet skis. A nice large front deck overlooking a great view of the pond and the great outdoors.
    There are roads around our place for people that like to take relaxing walks. Sunbathe on the deck. Expect windy days, fresh air and the smell of Lake Rathbun when the winds are blowing in the right direction. A very peaceful place to stay.
    Everyone that lives in the antler acres is very friendly and helpful. Just a fun area to hang out and only about 15 minutes of many great towns to go explore. Honey Creek State Park Resort is only 6 mins away!
  • We had a great time staying here. My parents (who are mid 60's) and my husband and I stayed here, while my sister, brother-in-law, nephew and our son stayed in another mobile home down the road. Brad's home was very clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. It felt like home. We spent all our time hanging out here, rather than at my sister's, as it had two bathrooms and just felt homier. We were close to the lake and spent our days at Lake Rathbun and then came back in the evenings to grill out and then play board games and cards. Very fun and relaxing weekend, peaceful setting! If we end up at Lake Rathbun again, we will definitely stay here!

    Top floor loft overlooking the Oskaloosa square. Plenty of room for 4 people. Walk to everything. High speed internet and hulu live.
  • We've stayed several time in the corner apartment and always enjoy it. It's clean, comfortable and stylishly appointed. The view of the square is lovely and it's in a great location. The breakfast treats are always welcome too!

    Jeanine2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Just enjoyed our 2nd stay at this wonderful loft apartment. Looking forward to our next visit. Roomy, warm, lots of light, with great views and a charming downtown square. Great Host!

    Sheryl2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place had a wonderful energy. It was very inviting, calming and comfortable. It is on a busy street, and can be loud at times, but over all the place is fantastic. The hosts were also wonderful. Its really the ideal AirBnB.

    John2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A very spacious, well-equipped and stylish apartment in a great location. Clean and warm. Todd and his Mom were wonderful hosts. Would definitely use again.

  • Convenient location. Beautiful place, very clean. Wonderful hosts with thoughtful touches. Lots of stairs. Great views. Walking distance to many things.

    Jaime2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a spacious, yet cozy space. The views of downtown are amazing. I work nights remotely, and had to work one night during our stay. The wifi was excellent, even with some of the notoriously touchy programs utilized by my employer. I didn’t experience a single hiccup. I had a fantastic view of the holiday lights while I worked. Todd and Nancy are very hospitable. Communication was top notch, and I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking to stay in the area.

    We live in spacious country side with friendly neighbors.
  • This is a cute and tiny place to stay! Enough room for 4. We stayed in November and the space was heated nicely with a small space heater. It was a fun adventure for us to not have indoor plumbing! Of course Tamra was very accommodating and offered her indoor bathroom and shower when needed.

    Jennifer2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • LOVE IT! Just my cup of tea.... Tamra is a great hostess and is very attentive to what a guest is wanting. It was the perfect spot for my son and I to just kick back. To not have to deal with a hotel etc. was well worth it. If you want a great stay for some peace and quiet - go here! Will stay again soon I hope!!

    Heidi2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tamra's she-shed was a hit! Stylish touches in decorating. Relaxing laid back living in the country. Rick and Tamra were really nice folks!

    Scott2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is quaint, quiet, and is on a farm with lots of land. Very laid back space. Has an outdoor shower and a clean, well kept outhouse for use. So, is a little rustic but certainly more than adequate & better than a hotel, in my opinion. Location is just about 4 miles to Knoxville which is where I spent my time. There are 2 queen beds. The one in the loft is firm and the one on the bottom level is softer. Bedding, towels, & wash cloths are provided. There are lots of fun vintage accents throughout. A coffee pot with coffee and cups and microwave are provided inside the cottage.

    Jennie2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was an absolutely wonderful Airbnb experience! The place is exactly as described - rustic (outdoor shower) and picturesque and idyllic. Everything was meticulously clean and set up with many thoughtful touches. Tamra was very warm and welcoming, greeting us personally and showing our son her horses. She got up at 6 a.m. and braved the storm to invite us into her home during a tornado watch in the morning, allowing us to use the shower in her home as well as serving us breakfast and coffee. We hope to be back!

    Amy2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable, cozy little cottage!

    Alex2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • This would have to be one of my favourite air bnb's! I fell inlove with this place. The barn is cute, cosy and clean and absolutely loved the outdoor shower! The family was very welcoming and gave us lots of tips on places to eat, drink and see. If we ever come back to Knoxville we would definitely stay again! Thank you for everything!

  • Of course Juile is a super host! She greeted us with a genuinely relaxed no-pressure and welcoming check-in. We were blown away at the personal touches in this particular Air BnB! The photos do not do justice to the extremely clean, decorated and well made cabin. This quaint space feels very open and accessible with its high ceilings, moveable sliding barn doors, many windows and thoughtful interior design. Everywhere I looked I saw IKEA branded furniture, appliances, lighting and more! If you know IKEA then you know it is well made, engineered for functionality and has exceptional craft. I felt like I was in an IKEA show room! Well done! One of my favorite features were the swiveling light fixtures on both sides of the bed. I was able to read my book in the early hours of morning without disturbing my sleeping partner. I also loved the electric fireplace situated in a vintage TV cabinet. This fireplace had a dozen different settings and really made the rainy day feel cozy as we played board games and settled in for a day indoors. The kitchen and bathrooms were gorgeous and spotless with many extra amenities not even mentioned in the listing! Another high five for Julie. I wish we could have stayed longer to fire up the grill and shoot some hoops, (both amenities are part of the private driveway at the cabin) but I guess we will save that for the next time we visit. Bottom line- If you’re looking for a place that is hassle free, spotless, well decorated and designed to provide you with a true feeling of comfort like your home away from home, this is the place! It is within a 5 minute drive to Knoxville and less than 10 minutes to beautiful Lake Red Rock. Don’t pass on this great stay...it really is better in person than in the pictures!

    Sara2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our weekend at Lois's place. The view was beautiful and the goats were so much fun. The location is close to Des Moines as well as Red Rock Lake, and the town of Knoxville has some great restaurants to check out. I would definitely come back for another weekend getaway :)

    Katherine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Country getaway with beautiful views. Such a relaxing place to unwind.

    Carroll2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great stay! Would definitely come back. The place is cute and we loved all the goat decor and enjoyed checking out the actual goats too!

    Diana2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve stayed here a couple of times, and plan on coming back in the future! We love it here—it’s such a beautiful, comfortable, quiet place. Lois is a wonderfully accommodating and friendly hostess! My kids love the goats and cats, and being able to tag along with Lois while she does chores. We always enjoy our stay here!

    Ashley2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing get away at Lois’s cabin. It was just like we imagined, it was cold and raining out so it was the perfect cabin type of weekend. Even having to go to two thanksgivings we had plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the beautiful view the cabin has to offer. We also dug into the goat books and learned something new. Would defiantly go back in the future.

    Samantha2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • You’ll enjoy a relaxing time here. Take advantage of watching the goats play and get some rural therapy away from the city lights. Great place to spend some quiet time away from home.

    Debra2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Love, love, love this air bnb. Lois is awesome and the cabin was perfect! We have family interested in staying and will definately come back. Such a beautiful, quiet area.

    David2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Of all the places I've stayed across the nation, this apt was the most pleasant stay I've had. This place is really stylish and cozy. Spotless! Safe! Close to everything. I waljed across the town square to see a new movie--ticket was only $5, and Peace Tree Brewery is only a block away. Main Street Midwest Hometown America. I needed a getaway--to be snowed in for the weekend and it was perfect. Megan provided all the unexpected toiletries, and there was even a few treats waiting in the fridge! Wonderful experience. Highly recommended. WILL DEFINITELY RETURN! I😊Thank you, Megan!

  • Dallas's home was the perfect place for five riders on Ragbrai who needed a clean, comfortable, and cool place to stay at a very reasonable price. What made it even better was his hospitality in helping ensure we had transportation to and from his home with no strings attached. Thanks Dallas!

    James2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so unique! We were traveling on RAGBRAI (we vend the whole route) and needed a quick place to stay. Not only affordable, but accommodating. Dallas made check in simple and easy! We are a hunting family, so the decor and atmosphere was fun! Thank you!

    This home is new inside and out! Guests will be given a code for entry and keys will be inside upon arrival. House is equipped with a full kitchen including all the serving, cooking and baking items you need for the best stay ever. The following light breakfast items are provided at no charge: Oatmeal, granola, Oui yogurt, coffee and tea. Also onsite and available for free is a new Weber gas Barbecue grill.
    We can provide kayaks, golf clubs and golf discs upon request. Inside and out of our chalet, enjoy nature all around you. The spacious exterior sprouts luscious flowers in spring, summer and fall and the beautiful maple cascades shade for all who sit under it and many feathery and furry friends who consider it their abode all year 'round. We are a couple blocks from the bike trail that traverses miles around our town through a plethora of native flora and fauna. The windows in the home let natural light reflect beautiful colors and textures inside and provide a window to nature. There is a fence surrounding part of the yard and as the grass matures, a fire pit and seating in the back will be set up for gatherings around the fire. If you enjoy grilling, feel free to use the new gas Weber Spirit II grill for the perfect steak, burger or other feast of your choosing. Inside, there is comfort and beauty in every room and extras that you shan't find yourself in wanting.
    Oskaloosa city square, eleven blocks from this home, is remarkable with the best coffee/ice cream shop around, quaint bookstore housed in historic bank packed with all genres uniquely covered. This Bookvault is also sprinkled with specialty gifts - enjoy! Shop locally owned boutiques, antique venues, a Christian bookstore, and more. Visit our art center where local art is displayed and winter concert series take place or sign up for one of your own art experiences there. Our town square and beautiful dining alley also have numerous events scheduled including our annual Art on the Square, Sweet Corn Serenade, Lighted Christmas Parade, Thursday night Summer Concerts, and so much more! Ready for lunch? Stay downtown and choose from one of our family owned restaurants: Brickhouse Cafe (fun drinks, delicious breakfasts and lunch for the whole family), Julie’s Home Cafe (regulars gather for breakfast and lunch), Tasos (large menu steakhouse with something just right for all), Mi Ranchito (authentic Mexican food), Wanderlunch (hidden gem of creative dishes inside our mall), and more! Bring a blanket and picnic on the grass or read on a lit park bench during evening hours while the kids run and climb on our historic gazebo or walk together or for inspired alone time across the street to hang out in our famous alley filled with flowers, area history and friends enjoying each other. Dining for dinner in Oskaloosa must include Iowa’s Number One Burger which is served in an artsy atmosphere put together by a local designer and fitted with art from near and far; the Wood Iron Grill features chef inspired dinners, drinks and desserts prepared daily which also can be enjoyed outdoors overlooking one of the town’s beautiful golf courses. Weekends often include live music here. Other notable restaurants outside the city square include Great Expectations (garden fresh specialties and catering available during your stay), Pepper Tree, and many fast food options. You’ll also enjoy the Frosty Udder for soft served treats from homemade pies stirred into their famous home style blend to blackberry or other flavors featured that week! Oskaloosa has a beautiful bike trail system that can be accessed a couple blocks from our home. Our city park is connected to this and includes one of our golf courses, a variety of picnic spots, frisbee golf course, fishing pond, play ground and swimming pool with waterslides. On this trail you can also reach Lacey Sports Complex, William Penn College, all of our schools, Bobzilla’s Bike Shop, phase one of our Solar System Walk About, our newly renovated Mahaska Conservation Learning Center which holds the Mammoth bones purchased from a local farmer in 2010 who found the head of a Mammoth femur bone in a backyard creek and soon after brought in archaeologists to find more. While on this trail whizzing by native prairie grasses, wild flowers, streams and ponds, stop at one of the many identification guides placed there by local Boy Scout or 4H clubs or sit on a bench provided by more of the same to listen to all the sounds of creatures scurrying about in their natural habitats and start that nature journal. We have a beautiful state park with walking trails and a peaceful no wake lake ten minutes east of town and to the west a winery with scheduled fire roasted pizza nights where they encourage families to bring yard games and play together while enjoying the wine you chose after free tasting and your meal. Right near the winery is a cheese factory with morning cheese making viewable through large windows. Mahaska County has also reserved at least twenty areas for your family’s nature exploration. We also have a couple large reservoirs for all kinds of water sports nearby, including Red Rock and Rathbun. Both have scheduled events, trail systems and water sports equipment rental. Red Rock Lake is an oasis for novice rock and driftwood collectors. The cliffs at Red Rock are beautiful and one of the best places to explore in Iowa! Frank Loyd Wright built two homes here and inspired another builder who utilized suggestions to build his own rendition of a Wright home. If you come during the fall, take your family to Autumn Acres, located at Stam’s Greenhouse and while your there, find something you love and buy it! All the plants at this home, vases and plant hangers came from this well loved establishment! Even if you are able to do a handful of the options in this town, you’re gonna love it here! We’d be happy to host you again to do some more!
  • Great place to stay!

    Jeremy2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This beautifully decorated cottage was spotless when we arrived. Our hosts were able to accommodate a same-day reservation, which allowed us to have a spontaneous weekend getaway. I cannot say enough good things about this space. It's bright and lovely and not a bit of it is wasted; it's a wonderful blend of style and function. We would not hesitate to stay again. Due to the fact we only stayed one night, we did not use many of the amenities, but I can say that the bathtub was nice and deep and allowed for a good soak, and the washer/dryer were a welcome luxury (especially for this couple that decided to up and go without packing anything to wear). The area guide provided was comprehensive, and due to our hosts' recommendation we had the most delicious dinner at the Wood Iron Grille. We look forward to our next visit to Oskaloosa!

    Michelle2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very relaxing get-away location. Perfect for if you want peace, quiet, and relaxation. We enjoyed the very comfortable sofas and chairs, watching the very long trains go by (far enough away that they were not loud), playing in the snow, and some good old-fashioned family time. As is common and frequently unavoidable in rural Iowa, the internet is slow. This was a plus for us, but you should be aware of it if you need a fast connection. Misty provided some snacks to welcome us, check-in and out was easy, and everyone (2 kids, 2 adults) was delighted.

    Georgeanna2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

  • Arleen and Dwight welcomed us like family with fresh baked cookies! Dwight took my boys and I out to look at his wild flower fields and to check the oats! Their hospitality was beyond our expectations! My children loved the animals! They never turned on the TV once and played outside the entire time! We for sure will make this a stop every year on our way to camp! If you want to relax this is the place!

  • So accommodating.

  • A rustic slice of peaceful paradise! 10 minutes outside the nearest town on a picturesque country road to a rustic and homey experience. Getting off the grid for a little while to sit outside and take in the fresh air and the beautiful scenery was such a blessing. This was our first time staying with air b & b and it was a marvelous experience. Arleen and her husband were very friendly including fresh baked cookies upon arrival. The cabin was clean, cozy, and peaceful. The game room/ multi purpose area is great! Stocked with anything one might need to use at their home away from home! Our favorite part of the experience though was hands down the beautiful animals roaming around. Their dogs and cats are the cutest and sweetest animals and there’s always a critter or two roaming around whether it be chickens, sheep, a few cows, a couple goats, a gaggle of ducks, pheasants or a beautiful peacock!

  • Arleen was great at responding to messages quickly. We arrived later in the evening and she had the cabin lights on for us and unlocked and ready for our stay. We enjoyed our weekend and wish we could have had a couple more days to sit and enjoy the farm since while we were there we were busy doing other things.

  • Tamra's cottage is the perfect glamping getaway! The inside is so adorable, and the outdoor shower is refreshing. Staying on her farm is so peaceful, and I felt so comfortable while traveling alone. She's the sweetest host and made sure everything was wonderful. I only wish I could've stayed longer. Highly recommend her place and it's very convenient to Knoxville Raceway!
